Fall 2022 CivicFest

Practical educational and civic transformation.

“We can build a society grounded on friendship and our common humanity—a society founded on tolerance. That is the only road open to us.” — Nelson Mandela

Get Active. Get Inspired. Get Involved. Together, We Can Make a Better World!

Imagine if all Americans of good will, good health, and liveable family income devoted only 1 hour per week to service and only 1 hour per day to becoming their best selves. The world would look very different.

If we are to build this world with a more equitable society and strong democracy for future generations, we must work together. Starting with bettering our civic culture, the change can begin within ourselves: developing leadership mindsets, habits, and skills, then inspiring others to “be the change we wish to see in the world.”

Spring 2022 CivicFest

Held at Malcolm X/Meridian Hill Park in Columbia Heights, over a dozen nonprofit organizations connected with community members about their volunteer needs and signed them up to get involved. There was also hourly yoga classes along with the Vision Flags public art project where community members could draw their vision of an ideal community or life through art, phrases, or whatever inspired them most!
